In January, the holidays officially came to a close and winter’s coldest temperatures arrived over the course of a few weeks. One month seemed to last for a very long time, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that I was battling some serious cabin fever. I realized it was time for me to look to my forever cure: travel!

Where will you go?
Just in case you love talking all things travel too, I thought I would offer more inspiration. My first question: Snow, sand, or city? Let’s dive into all three!
February and March are two of my favorite months to travel. Spring’s arrival is palpable, but the seasons haven’t changed just yet. As a result, a getaway to the mountains to ski, snowboard, snow tube, and ice skate is a definite possibility. As an East Coast resident, Vermont is one of my favorite spots to ski. There is plenty of snow, and I love exploring the quaint towns in New England when I need a break from the slopes. Of course, Colorado, Montana, Wyoming, and Northern California also have incredible mountains too if you would prefer to head west! They’re all on my list to experience, and you can book your ski trip with Booking.com and Hotels.com through the app.
By this point in the winter, a warm getaway to enjoy the beach might be more up your alley. Florida and Southern California both have plenty of beaches to enjoy during this time of year. Miami, Boca Grande, and Naples are all excellent beach cities in Florida with plenty more to see off of the sand. And, any of the beaches from San Diego to Los Angeles always promise beautiful views! You could also plan the ultimate trip and skip outside of the U.S. to explore Mexico or the Caribbean.
In my opinion, there is never a season in which a trip to the city is not a wonderful idea. The winter offers a great opportunity to explore all of the indoor spots a city has to offer, which means plenty of time spent in museums. You can also add coffee shops, restaurants, shopping, and all things cultural to your experiences list. Check to see if the city you plan to visit has an indoor botanical garden, too! No matter the season, there are always flowers blooming inside. If you are looking for a new city to explore, I always hear incredible things about Boston, Charleston, SC, Chicago, Dallas, New York City, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Seattle. Which city will you visit when you book using Booking.com and Hotels.com through Shopkick?
Whether you choose to visit the mountains, beach, or city, I am certain you will be happy you said yes to traveling solo or with family or friends! So, where will your getaway take you?
